svn:externals set to tag

Hi list,

Using svn:externals is nice, but I've found it impractical to fetch the
bleeding edge from trunks, so I set it to fetch tags instead. While this works,
I get into trouble when I want to upgrade to a new tag:

1) Project A fetches tag from project B.

2) I make changes in project B trunk.

3) I run 'svn up' in project A, the changes in project B's trunk is, as
expected, not fetched, BUT the revision number is updated.

4) I tag project B with the new changes and update external in project A, but
now when I run 'svn up' it detects that revision number is already up-to-date,
and does not fetch the modified files from project B.

How can I get this to work? Or is svn:externals simply not meant to be used to
fetch tags?
